Milky white berried red Rilli shrimp

Recommended Posts

Does my shrimp have milky white disease? She is berried and looks a bit white.

Hi @Lucy,

It is difficult to see in that photo.

Can you try getting a side macro shot of the shrimp?

That is one heavily berried shrimp which looks fine/normal to me. Lots of shrimplets to look forward too!

Looks fine to me too.

She is heavily berried and that means you will have babies soon.

Feed her well. More protein will be good. If you have not tried frozen blood worms, that is the what you should feed when the females are berried. Really should have started feeding more protein when you see a saddle. But better later than never.

Oh wow, thank you. I had no idea about the bloodworms!

      So i would just follow your ratio ca:mg as per your diy mix for the sulawesi? besides using ro water to dissolve it, are there any other easier ways to make it dissolve in water? And when you mean cold, is like 20celcius okay? Sorry if im wrong, pounded down as in getting a mortar and pestle and pounding it down? Sorry if im asking too much

      Finally got photos of my chimera! I'm trying to find another for sale for crossings. Or maybe offspring as people don't want to part with them.   Here is the 36 gal, mostly planted. EBB and metallic galaxies going in here today, for now. First scape. Tried a bunch of rocks to no end. Lost most of the slope. I think primordial was achieved though. 20+ plants, won't go into them unless someone asks. Been hitting them with gentle light, co2 and ferts. A ghostie just cuz.   Red onyx are gorgeous and gregarious shrimp.   Still haven't got a good photo of the emeralds and I'm sure everyone knows blue diamonds.   I'll go hunt up pics of the shrimps incoming in the future so we can compare them to actual shrimps down the road. Adios

      I don't keep Sulawesi shrimp. So if i buy the ingredients for it, they won't get used and will be a waste of my money. Hope you understand. If you still want to try making it look for  Calcium Chloride Dihydrate  Magnesium chloride hexahydrate  Potassium chloride    For Neos, you replace the Calcium sulphate with Calcium carbonate completely. So the formula will look like this ... Calcium carbonate CaCO3 60gm Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salt) MgSO4 35gm solubility of CaCO3 is a lot worse in water compared to CaSO4. The acidity in RO water will help. Cold RO water will help it dissolve more too. The CaCO3 needs to be pounded down as fine as possible to help it dissolve.

      Do you think it would be possible if you could help by remaking one for sulawesi shrimps? and for neos do i add calcium carbonate and calcium sulphate or just use 10-20g of calcium carbonate?

      Were the 2 that died the ones with Scut on them? do you have an ammonia test? Check ammonia levels. In fact, check all water parameters and let us know what your tests results are. No planaria will kill off these parasites, and that can cause a spike in ammonia with all the dead parasites. But that depends on how many of them were in the tank/substrate. Always do a water change a day after treatment.    If you still have Scut in the tank on your shrimps, a half dose of No Planaria is safer and should still be affective in dealing with parasites. I feel Genchem's dosage recommendation can be a bit too high to be honest. From a product marketing point of view, they want you to use up more than necessary and buy more, but it's not necessarily safe for all shrimps.  Always start with a half dose for anyone else reading.
